With a fascinating history dating back to the late 1600’s, Langebaan was once a safe haven for ships navigating the often treacherous Atlantic Ocean. Seafarers from all over the world were able to safely come to shore via the Langebaan Lagoon, and the stopover provided a chance to obtain fresh meat and agricultural supplies. In later years, the area was used for whaling, and whaling stations were setup here until the 1950’s. Langebaan was also a prime spot for ships collecting guano, which was collected from the surrounding rocky shores along the coastline. Conservation laws eventually prohibited both whaling and guano collection however, and the area became a holiday destination for farmers from the surrounding West Coast areas. In the 1980’s, property in Langebaan began its boom when new developments and improved infrastructure made the town a highly sought-after residential area.
Today, Langebaan is a thriving coastal resort town that is a firm favourite with holidaymakers and locals alike who flock to the area in search of prime Langebaan properties.
